America needs to wean off coal!, Natural gas is a lot cleaner and cheaper. Coal is a real dirty word, It is dirty to mine and it is dirty to burn. Ny area in Kentucky is destroyed because of the coal mining!, Our streams and water supplies are polluted.

America needs to start promoting Solar power & wind turbines. Much less polluting & cheaper to run. Sorry to hear your streams are polluted!

So what should we replace it with, dylithium crystals from Vulcan? You can't be against coal and then preach about natural gas. The only other power source currently available that can replace coal AND support America's power grid is nuclear, and we all know that the tree-huggers are against that as well.
